Small Grants Fund 2010-13

Mental Health Project Small Grants

Funded Projects 2010-13 in ascending order of money awarded

Day for Life Funds were made available in a range of eleven small grants totalling £70,000.

The Fund was established to support the development of good practice resources across the Catholic community for the pastoral care, at local level, of those with mental distress, their families and carers.

Applicants were expected to demonstrate how their project would benefit people with mental health distress, their families and carers in our Catholic parishes, deaneries, schools, hospitals, universities, prisons, organisations and communities.

The Fund was created from the Day For Life collections given by parishioners in 2008 and 2009.
